Maria Sharapova

Maria Sharapova has shaped women’s tennis for many years. She was a superstar and style icon in one and the same person. An era came to an end when the Russian announced her retirement on 26 February 2020.

Maria Sharapova won five grand slam titles in her unique career. She had just turned 17 when she beat title-holder Serena Williams in the 2004 Wimbledon final to become the first Russian to win the world’s most prestigious tournament. It qualified her for the WTA Championships in Los Angeles where she again overcame Serena Williams in the final. On 22 August 2005, she became the first Russian to top the world rankings.

With breaks, she was the world No.1 for a total of 21 weeks. Other grand slam titles came her way at the 2006 US Open, the 2008 Australian Open as well as the French Open in 2012 and 2014. Unforgettable is also her title hat-trick at the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix in 2012, 2013 and 2014. Not only as such but also in her role as a Porsche Brand Ambassador since 2013, she has shaped Porsche’s engagement in women’s tennis. During the course of her career, she won a total of 36 singles titles.
